The work of the hand sculpts a place in the heart.

I love to create works of art which inspire others to appreciate and preserve the character and beauty from the Native American cultures to Shakespearean characters and their stories.

As an artist and educator, I am constantly learning and exploring life. By studying the structures of humans, birds, wild life, horses, I can enrich the lives of others through my sculpture and the stories they tell.

All my years in design and color have given me the background and awareness to grow as an artist and to continually enhance my sculptures through composition and the special use of colors in the patina. I find working in Bronze and patina is a way that brings out the character of each sculpture and the story it tells.
